AmericaThe opening round of the Tour Championship on September 2 saw Rory McIlroy holding the pennant and Viktor Hovland closing the hole, both from a difficult position – the ball on the humus and behind the trees.

The tournament takes place at East Lake in Atlanta, Georgia and closes the 2020-2021 PGA Tour.

At the par4 4th hole, McIlroy played 316 yards but had a technical error. Due to the “banana trajectory” – “slice” (glide from left to right), the ball entered the tree line to the right of the fairway, on moist ground and 166 yards from the target. But since then, the former world No. 1 put the ball a little more than an inch from the hole and then scored a birdie.

A few minutes later, Hovland delighted the audience with a par4 5 hole eagle. This hole, he played 334 yards but left the left side, so he entered the same situation as McIlroy. The second shot was 128 yards from the target, the Swiss golfer tipped the ball over the treetops. It landed on the right then jerked to the left before entering the hole.
